Comments and insights on the name Camelia

I dispute the pronunciation key above! Camelia is Amelia with a C in front of it, sounds the same as Camellia, just a different spelling. I've found evidence of the flower being spelled with one or two L's, and it should be the same with the name.

Actually it is pronounce Kah-Mi-LLah, because it is an Italian

Camelia contains the same letters as Micaela

The Lady of the Camellias (French: La Dame aux camélias) is a novel by Alexandre Dumas, fils, first published in 1848, that was subsequently adapted for the stage. The Lady of the Camellias premiered at the Théâtre du Vaudeville in Paris, France on February 2, 1852. An instant success, Giuseppe Verdi immediately set about to put the story to music.
